Painting The Kitchen: How To Paint Raised Panel Kitchen Cabinet Doors

Painting The Kitchen Cupboards with Black or
White Kitchen Designs in Color

Recently we painted an entire oak kitchen changing it from a natural wood oak color to a bright white and making the room brighter and feel larger not to mention newer and more modern. A lot of people are leery of going in painting the kitchen cupboards black. This is a very sharp contrasting serious color. This is why people tend to shy away from it. White kitchens are where you have a large variety of different colors around and this doesn’t seem to be affected as much as if your kitchen cabinet were black in color.

Popular Paint Colors For Kitchens

Mississauga Handyman Painting and Carpentry experience in kitchen cabinet paint colors is usually always in either light colors or dark colors whether it be regular kitchen cabinets paint or kitchen cabinet stain. Painting the kitchen cabinet is much easier and cheaper than to refinish with a stain. Preparation work for painting of the doors and walls of the cabinets is a lot less work that if the wood have to be stripped-down to bare. When the cupboard doors were originally sprayed with a stain and then a couple of coats of varnish, it is difficult to sand down clean through to the pigmented wood to the original color. Usually people generally tend to pick a darker stain color then what was originally on the cabinets. This allows a little less intense sanding work. So in other words if you choose to pick a darker stain color that would probably be more cost-effective unless you change to a different hue / color.

Painting Your Kitchen Cupboards

It takes time to paint an entire kitchen whether it is painted by hand or spray-painted. All the cabinets have to be cleaned first.
Next, the cabinets have to be sanded down thoroughly and then dusted to remove any dust.
Cabinets have to be primed (again and this takes a certain amount of time for the primer to dry and set ready for the next coat)
The first coat of paint has to be applied and set aside for it to dry. Therefore there will be a number of doors drying before they can be painted with a second coat of paint.
The final coat of paint goes on and then set to dry
Doors cannot be handled until they are thoroughly dry. Only then can the doors be reinstalled when you know that the paint will not come off by handling it.
